is that comes down to politics. when president obama was elected, congress started working on the health-care bill that ended up being the affordable care act. they ruled out single-payer from the beginning. no one really put a lot of muscle behind it in congress. among other things, it is fairly obvious to point out that the health-insurance industry is a big powerful industry and they have a lot of employees. to do something like single- payer would disrupt all of that. not to mention, i have been thinking about this since the furor a month ago with plans getting canceled. at least a few million people who got the letters from the insurance companies that they could not keep their insurance from this year into next year and everybody freaked out -- if you did single-payer, literally everybody would get a letter like that. if i were a member of congress i would look at it as 2 million levels -- 2 million letters, and i would wonder what it would be like if it was 170 million or more. our intermediaries in the form of insurance companies, that may add some cost to the equation. one thing that

to same-sex marriage? yes, there's a big part of the population that's interested in that. is obama care constitutional? a huge number of people will focus on it in an institution that won't adapt itself because it's very staid to getting that information out there. in terms of what it is we're able to do as part of a national conversation, it should be clear to everyone that we are hardly alone. so, for example, american lawyer media, for which tony now works, has this wonderful publication, supreme court insider, which is getting more information about the court. pete reports on the law, the justice department, the supreme court. instead of one platform in nbc news, msnbc, and the website of nbc news. so i do think that we are far from alone in taking advantage of the lower cost of distribution. we should talk about the economic models. tony operates on one. some of the materials free through the blog. some of it is a subscription only through the supreme court insider. pete's work is advertisement supported. we have a sponsor in bloomberg law that's been essential to financing a huge

some problems with the obama web site and one of them is not going away which is the fundamental flaw of the affordable care act, the federal government is not capable of running the healthcare system, but we should root for is private, safer opportunities to improve the healthcare delivery to make health insurance more affordable. >> jon:. >> forget about obamacare if we can let the private sector run rampant in medical care, my gosh, you would be able to buy the equivalent of an iphone like you can now for $29. >> jon: where do you get your phone? i am sure the only way you can get the iphone equivalent for 29 bucks if you go to china town and snatch up a snapple y phone, which you can use to play all the top games, your irritated birds, your candy crunch, it is not even candy, that is lo zenk. >> my personal, lozenge. >> my favorite, root ninja. >> it catches the excitement of packing away at a root, because they are harder to -- cut. >> if you want to efficiently provide a product to millions of americans at once, the right thing in the private sector is the only way, government

. how can president obama be a racist when he is trying to provide health care to every american regardless of what ethnicity they are. back to the economy, you said you are optimistic. specifically, why? caller: it is getting better. buts not 100% better it is getting better. the former president, bush, made this economy terrible. now that things are getting better, it is just taking time. the republicans just keep blocking everything obama puts out there. if the republicans learn how to work with the president, maybe things can move much faster. was: do you think it because of government intervention that the economy is getting better you go -- better yet go -- better? republicans learn how to work with the president, they be things will get done faster. there would be faster growth in the economy. host: angela in georgia. from the 31 toso 50 category. deep in southwest georgia. agomember about 15 years when president george w. bush encouraged companies to thin work overseas and to emphasize we should have a service economy. college graduate, i have a degree in certification. i

of kids who simply can't do it and don't care about doing it, so what is barack obama going to do for them? >> and the question really is why hasn't he done more over five years? bill, this man's been talking about the income inequality in this country. when he is president of the united states, he's had a treasured opportunity to talk about that which counts, that is, education, which is the great equalizer of our society. >> but you have to reform the educational system, and there's been no movement to do that. the teachers unions are still blocking any kind of meaningful reform as far as teacher productivity is concerned. >> so, you don't want to engage in educational theory, you actually want him to do something. >> yeah, i want everybody to do something. >> absolutely. >> because all their solution is, "the new york times," too, throw money at -- bang! here! more money. and the money doesn't do anything but raise taxes. >> two things people don't have the guts to deal with in this, and i'm talking about both parties -- they don't have the guts to say to the unions, our lined against l

left intact, and instead of universal health care, they got obamacare. mr. obama's not running for office, a whole new feisty brand of populism is sweeping the party. firebrands like warren along with new york city's new mayor, bill de blasio, are some of the darlings. centrists from the think tank third way warned against moving to the extreme left in a scathing "wall street journal" op-ed that said, quote: >> r eporter: former president bill clinton deliberately picked fights with far-left liberals to cast himself and the party as more mainstream. both parties face this. listen to a warning for his own party, democrats, from indiana u.s. senator even bye. >> i do think you're going to see a more activist, liberal wig of the democratic party, and you may see them playing the same role in democratic primary contests that the tea party has played on the republican side where you have anti-establishment, more ideologically pure, for lack of a better word, candidates running which then lead to less electable nominees. >> reporter: so centrists are warning the liberal progressives
